I'm not a lawyer but it probably has to do with there being a law passed in regards to both. To my knowledge there has only been a verbal mandate about masks rather than something written into law.

Is there an actual law that says you have to wear a mask?

Just FYI but here in FL I wear a mask when I'm in a store but only so they can stay open. At my home on GA if I wear a mask I would be the only one.

Rarely enforced, but they can write $25 tickets here in certain circumstances. Thankfully the local PD and sheriffs department have little interest in enforcing such. State level law enforcement has made visits to a few high profile places that have pushed back against the mandates (mandates...specifically not legally passed laws) and issued fines when the local sheriff refused to waste time on the matter. They evidently felt like the establishment needed to be "taught a lesson" or something stupid. Establishment just put a "fine jar" on the counter and carrying on with life.

Driving on public roads is not a right, contrary to the comparison many folks try to make.

They can ticket you in Michigan for a seat belt. Paid them and went about my business. Same as if they start fining for masks.

Seatbelt tickets are common in the west. Mask wearing should be a ticket in my view. We need to get this virus behind us and we lead the world in supidity and not wearing masks is the biggest reason.
Some people do not belive in death but in the end they get it.

My house and .71 acres of the American Dream? My bank, mostly. But I have a plan to make it mine.

And they sure as hell ain't coming out here to mow so it's mine by adverse possession anyway.

Edit: actually it's about half and half, but I'm taking my half and buying windows and some land.

So, if I'm alone in my car and don't wear a mask I should get a ticket? Who am I suppose to protect while in my car alone?

Should I also get one if my wife (who I live with) and I are in the car together maskless? Do you also think they should come into your house inspecting for masks?

Not gonna happen.

Wear a mask in the car alone is about the same as wearing clean under wear.

Seat belts are a law, masks a mandate. Governors and mayors can't legislate, despite their best efforts to do so.

I believe that seat belts were driven by insurance companies who were paying for the injuries that could have been prevented by the wearing of a seatbelt. The answer to your question is that insurance rates would be higher if people didnít wear seatbelts, which means you would affect everyone through higher insurance rates. It probably isnít that big an effect if you die, itís the cost of paying for the injuries that has the major impact.
